Hip-Hop In Sex

DO

I think it’s great that Dwayne stepped on board with a product that promotes sexual responsibility and AIDS outreach and education. This flyer does a great job of appealing to his audience in an amusing way while keeping sexual responsibility in the forefront.

DON’T

Come on! After all the ambiguous behavior with Baby they thought this was a good idea? How could Strapped give this flyer the go ahead? Did no one bring up the fact that it looks like the officer is giving Dwayne a little preview of what lies on the inside? At least they’re being safe.

Hip-Hop In Video Games

DO

No matter what comes out of Tipper Gore’s bitchassness mouth, Grand Theft Auto is a force to be reckoned with in the gaming world. The first three games were all improvements over one another in a much more technical sense, but by the time GTA: Vice City came out it started to take on a little more culture with what I believe was the first soundtrack to ever be released from a video game. With the introduction of GTA: San Andreas hip-hop and video games collided in a way never seen before with one hell of a, yes, DOPE hip-hop soundtrack!

DON’T

Fiddy’s Blood on the Sand, slammed by Electronic Gaming Monthly upon its release, is a wonderful story about how Fiddy and his posse are in the Middle East for a concert and someone snatches one of their chains and they go to WAR to reclaim it. Yes, the chain. What’s interesting about this is that a video recently surfaced of Fiddy actually having his chain snatched at a concert in Angola and I didn’t see them do shit. Lame.

Hip-Hop In Electronics

DO

I’m a diehard Mac user, and I think HP is shit (I have personal beef with them over a missing attachment cable in my new printer box I might add). But every time I see this commercial it makes me think maybe HP laptops are aight.

DON’T

Yeah, it’s pretty funny I’ll admit, but it’s bad enough that I have to deal with Bill Cosby making a hip-hop album, now I have to deal with the company that I buy printer paper from making parodies on hip-hop artists too? Oh yes, this was indeed funded by HP believe it or not. Look it up.

Hip-Hop In Food

DO

You know your MF Doom listening, Madlib loving ass comes down with a case of the munchies ’round the time you pop in Blunted in the Bomb Shelter or Madvillain. And what a trip are these? Beware anyone with an overactive collector’s mindset. Food collection is just nasty.

DON’T

What a rip off! Education is knowledge? Well no shit potato chip DJ! Or MC? …J-Live wanna be? Yo, I’m breaking out the bitchassness award from 50 Worst Hip Hop Album Covers because MC Potato deserves it for being a biter, same brand name and all.

Hip-Hop In TV Shows

DO

Snoop Dogg’s Fatherhood. Personally, I’m only slightly entertained by this show, but Snoop’s got the right idea. Snoop’s firing back against hip-hop’s negative media portrayal with a positive message. From HipHopDX:

We’re becoming fathers, and we’re doing something that our fathers didn’t do,” began a blue-flannel shirt wearing Snoop Dogg to press including HipHopDX. “Every rapper – I’ll say that 90% of rappers grew up without fathers. Now we see 90% of the rappers becoming fathers to their kids. We don’t never get commended for that… [the press would] rather talk about how we shot somebody or somebody getting hit upside the head at a party rather than what we do. We become real men when we get to this spot where we’re at now.

DON’T

Who else is offended by this Flava Flav mantan show? His brother couldn’t even buy the big house with his own money? It had to be settlement money? This is what Bamboozled was TALKING about! I would love to see what Spike Lee has to say about this one. Thanks to Flav and the creators of Under One Roof for taking things back to the minstrel show days with this one.
